The Republic are now on six points in their World Cup group with Germany and Sweden ahead of them and Keane is adamant Trap should stay.

Keane said, “The manager knows that with the squad of players we have, we are quite capable of qualifying, and I believe we can qualify, there’s no question about that.

“I still believe we can qualify and I am sure the manager believes that too, so I believe that the manager will be there with us.

“It’s out of my hands, but I am sure every player would probably say the same, we want him to stay and continue this campaign.”
